Is love enough

Thirty days and nights spent alone
Waiting for him to come home
He always seems to be gone
She only hears him on the phone

The few days hes home
She hopes for some time alone
With the trucker  she calls her own
No time today shes told with a moan

She never makes the top of his list
With a kiss on her lips
He promises her next time
But for now he has to go

As she waves goodbye to him
A single tear drops from her chin
That's the way its always been
Why bother with waiting again

    Congrats on the feature. If you get a chance, listen to "Ravishing Ruby" by Tom T. Hall. A great look at a truckers daughter's story. Vince
